saying she was not doing this again. four years ago could michelle obama have pulled off ann's fire? >> i have a little bit of a soft spot for political wives. it's hard to watch someone white house who you're in love with be in a struggle that is a political campaign, so i feel her on that and i even like the fact that a political wife in this case is speaking her mind rather than being fully managed by the campaign at all times. think many of us are frustrated by how political wives sometimes get completely managed in campaigns. that said do i think michelle obama could have gotten away with these kinds of expressions of anger and irritation about how her husband was treated? no, i don't think so. i think we see clearly when michelle obama, before she was the first lady, did express even just her pride about it, that she was very much taken to task that and she was also considered maybe a liability going forward. doesn't certainly have the popularity factor that she has now back then. and the first lady, though, one thing she's done as first lady is championed for school nutrition as pa

over town. we just heard a variety of the democrats bad mouthing mitt romney. last night michele obama did not mention mitt romney's name. the first half of her speech could have been from a conservative because it is personal responsibility and the second half about her husband and why shoohe should have the key to camp david four more years. >> so many people had a hand in our success. from the teachers who inspired us and the janitors who kept our school clean. barack refused to lits lis to folks who told him to leave health reform another day and another president. he didn't care whether it was easy to do politically. that's not how he was raised and i hear the determination in his voice he tells me. you will not believe what folks are going through. it is not right. we have to work to fix this and we have so much more to do. >> brian: i think she was strong. she was poise and delivered a great message and the delivers the young family growing nup the white house and needs more time. i thought one thing everybody talked about the mayor of san antonio. julian castro and i think when
and talked about michelle obama you could feel the room light up and how unbelievably respected and effective she was, but then we got to the film, all of a sudden you recognize that enron they clearly represents inner strength, that she brings realism. she did everything her husband has not done and has not been able to get to. >> i think if you voted on the 22nd amendment they would have repealed if you're a good the clinton and michelle obama ticket for the united states, i think that came through. the bloom is very much off the rose on obama, and i think the formulation and now is the question is the faction, and they are somewhere in between, and you can see if it is pervasive, and the question is defection. i am angry, but i am not going to do it. she to me was quintessential. a fact of these people got so much out of the conventions -- they really a sort of so much, region in re -- they really absorbed so much. >> it was hard to see, because we did not have the tabulation, but if you do a net balance, it does not seem it is going to end up as a big romney game. praxair was one person h
. [cheers] no one could tell it as well as michelle obama, as you did last night, on monday night. i know him from a different perspective. i know him and i want to show you the character of a leader who had what it took when the american people stood on the brink of a new depression. a leader who has what it takes to lead us over the next four years to the future as great as our people. i want to take you inside the white house to see the president as i see him every day. i didn't see him and sound bites. i walked 30 paces down the hall and i see him. i watch him in action. four years ago, the middle class was already losing ground and then the bottom fell out. the financial crisis hit piece sledgehammer. all the people i grew up with. you remember the headlines. you saw some in the previews. highlight, highest job losses in 60 years. headlines, economy on the brink. it's plummet -- markets plummeted worldwide. he knew he had not only to restore the confidence of a nation but he had to restore the confidence of the whole world.

the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa

before and michelle obama. we heard some very good speeches at that convention, and barack obama's was not the best speech, but it was a good enough speech. >> and maria, talk about a little bit about how he talked that you are the change. you are the ones who changed everything. he put it back on people. was that effective that point? >> i do, suzanne, and i think that it was effective, because it had not been something that we have heard from him before and i agree with ana in that there is no way to compare the speech last night to the one he either did in 2004 or 2008. 2008 was lightning in a bottle, and they know that they could not have tried to recreate that, and what he tried to do was pragmatic and poetic poetry, and he was pragmatic, because he asked people to take ownership with him of the hope and change and in doing that, he sort of was kennediesque saying, we are in this together, and it is not that we should not ask how to do it alone, but how we can do it together. it was a change on the famous kennedy line and i also think that he was humble, and he taed about th

the first lady and many others. michelle obama is supposed to walk across the stage in a couple of minutes from now. in three days, the convention will move down the road to the stadium which is the bank of america stadium. it is bigger and seats about 50,000 more people. that is where the president will deliver his prime time speech to the nation. the task? make the case for another four years despite the sluggish economy and high unemployment rate. on this labor day they are trying to remind voters the president inherited an economic mess. he did. but the numbers present tough odds. no president since roosevelt has won re-election with unemployment above 7.2 percent. the rate now is 8.3 percent. and mitt romney is gaining ground in key swing states, including here in north carolina. we will start off with mike emanuel. there is backlash from a key democratic constituency for holding the democratic national convention here. we are lacking in union workers here. >>reporter: north carolina is the right-to-work state. the union membership here in north carolina is the lowest by percentage in
seriously. and they're engaged on every level. >> that's first lady michelle obama reminding leaders at the awards banquet that this election all boils down voter turnout. the turnout rate for african-american voters was historic 65% wimp an increase of more than 2.4 million african-american voters. but a nationwide push to pass those voter i.d. laws like we just describe could reverse that upward trend. our next guest contends voter i.d. laws are not racially motivated. ron christy is the author of a new book, blackwards. ron, appreciate you joining us war room. >> good evening, governor, nice to be with you. >> obviously you come from the other side of the aisle and i appreciate the opportunity to have a respectful conversation. you claim voter i.d. laws are racially neutral and the language may be, but the effects certainly don't seem to be. if we look at the numbers there were voters who could all be denied the right to vote in these various states. the report today said up to 10 million latino voters. do you recall think that the voter i.d. laws are racially neutral in effect? >

. students of one kansas high school say first lady michelle obama's recommended school lunch calories is leaving them hungry. ♪ i need to get some food today ♪ ♪ my friends are at the corner store getting junk so they don't waste away ♪ >> some students posted this video on youtube. mrs. obama pushed for an 850 calorie count meal during school lunch, but the high school students say that's not enough for growing teenagers and those who play sports. congress mandated the new calorie count restrictioned in the healthy hunger free kids act of 2010. >>> teenage girls in new york city will soon be able to get the plan "b" emergency contraception pill at their high schools and without their parents' consent. it's often referred to as the morning after pill. the city's department of education says girls as young as 14 will be able to get it as part of a pilot program at 13 public schools. parents have been notified about the pilot program and how their daughters can opt out of it. the city says it supports the idea because about 7,000 girls get pregnant by the time they're 17. new yo
. this has huge political implications as it comes after first lady michelle obama speaks to the dnc. there is a huge economic warning signal being made here. number one, $16 trillion worth of debt which means we owe more than our economy produces in any one year. our debt is bigger than our economy. secondly, we're now going to be paying close to $10 billion a week in interest alone. about a half trillion a year. 10 billion a week. up from nine billion last year. and about a quarter of that interest will be paid to foreigners. it will go out of the country. japan, china, britain, they're the three major holders of our debt. they all get about a quarter of all of this interest that is flowing and it will flow out of the country. so political impact, and a big economic danger signal too, martha. martha: we know, it was a huge focus of the rnc last week in tampa. big debt clock that loomed over the proceedings there. you simply don't hear much though about the debt from president obama. do you expect we'll hear hear anything about it at all this week? >> very little because it is a big
